Our deepest condolences to Aunt Naomi, Cousins Kim and Delia, and the entire family for your loss. I was fortunate to establish a relationship with Uncle Ed in recent years and enjoyed our talks by phone and in person. We established a warm friendship and he filled my knowledge gaps about family history. Uncle Ed was such a gracious and welcoming person, who represented our Spicer family so well. I’ll miss him very much. Rest in peace, Uncle Ed

What an absolutely amazing man. I have so many wonderful memories of him. But what I will never be able to forget, is how much grace, compassion and love, he gave to my mother in her last days. Thank you so much and may you rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathy on the loss of Uncle Ed. His memory will live on in our hearts. Uncle Ed made our visits to Texas feel like home; we will miss long talks, Tex-Mex dinners, and so much more. Sending love to Aunt Naomi, Cousins Delia & Kim.
You have my deepest condolences on the passing of a wonderful man. I remember the few interactions i had with him over the years. He always had a smile on his face and a laugh in his voice. He never made me feel like i was ever out of place. I remember when we all went salt water fishing on his boat and i was throwing up the whole time. He never got mad at me. He was actually tickled by it because we caught so much fish that day because of my “chumming” skills! I will miss him greatly. Much love to aunt naomi and cousins delia and kim!
My sincerest condolences to you Aunt Naomi , Delia & Kim. He was a true gentleman and will never be forgotten.
My sincerest sympathy for Ed’s family, especially Delia. May Ed rest in peace.
My heartfelt sympathy for the Spicer family. Stay strong in this time of grief.
My condolences to the Spicer family. Rest in peace my friend.
To the dear family our deepest sympathy to you all. Ed was very dear to us. Our fond memories of all the wonderful times we spent together will always be in our hearts. May the Lord surround you with his comfort and love. Prayers to you all.
